Arlo White’s “Dream Scenario” brings him back to Chicago, a place he’s been coming since he was 13

Arlo White is, apparently, not interested in rest.

After a busy season calling Premier League matches for NBC Sports, White is heading to the U.S. to announce Chicago Fire matches on WGN-TV this summer. It might seem crazy, but for White, it’s a dream. His roots run deep in both Chicago and Major League Soccer, and he’s glad to be coming back.

White talked to Hot Time in Old Town at length about why he’s joining the Fire, his favorite memories of visiting family in Chicago as a kid, why he thinks the Fire will turn around their struggling season, and, of course, his role on the hit Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.
